Designated Support Persons
How do I become a designated support person/family member?
The patient/client/resident determines who they would like to identify as the family members/support persons to be present with them. This can include a loved one, friend, paid caregiver (like an occupational/physical therapist), or other support person of the patient/client/resident’s choosing.
If you are not sure if you have been designated as a support person, or have questions, please contact the facility care team in advance to confirm.
Note that some information may be updated or changed, pending how COVID-19 evidence continues to evolve. It is important to maintain a balance between these recommendations and patient/resident needs.
